Hi, everyone.  I'm new to the board.  :-)
I was just diagnosed with Crohn's, based on the ileitis seen in a colonoscopy.
My main symptoms are arthritis, fatigue and abdominal pains.     confused
I get constipation but not diarrhea which is why it took years for anyone to diagnose me. 
I didn't have the abdominal pains prior to a bout of food poisoning a few years back. 
I feel certain there is a connection, that I ingested something, MAP or something else.
I tried to convince my infectious disease specialist, who thinks I'm crazy and should just take the Pentasa, etc. my GI gave me.  He wouldn't read the articles I brought because they weren't from peer-reviewed medical journals.
I might like to start antibiotics, if that would help.  Can anyone recommend a good doctor in the NY metro area?  Thank you!
